Why Should You
Avoid added fees with direct bookings:
Popular booking sites like Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, and TripAdvisor add extra fees to your bookings, driving up the total.
Get the best price:
Booking direct is the best way to get the lowest price; OTA's simply can't offer the same kind of savings that the property manager can.
Insider info from our manager:
Booking direct puts you in contact with the home's manager or owner, who can provide more info about your area or property.
Accommodate special needs:
If you have special requirements or are bringing a pet, you can work with the manager before booking to be assured of appropriate care.
Save more with special rates:
Directly booking with managers gets you access to specials not offered through third party booking sites, saving you even more!

7. What is the best compliments we have received from a client? "Very flexible, courteous, friendly ownership! My friends and I are serving in the U.S. Navy stationed in San Diego and we travel to Golden Bear Cottages on weekends in the Winter whenever our schedule allows. Instead of making the 3-hour drive back to San Diego one day, we decided to rent a nice big cabin. Golden Bear Cottages Resort just happened to be the first place we stopped, and we have been in love with it since. Once, we were snowed in on the mountain and we couldn't leave, and they gave us a generous discount on our cottage to ease our burden". Signed, Mike Mitchell and friends in the U.S. Navy. San Diego, CA .... "For our returning group: another great retreat at Golden Bear Cottages in Big Bear Lake. Once again, thank you so much for an amazing stay. We always appreciate all the extra service, and sincerely love your hospitality and friendliness. Each of our group leaders commented that each member of your staff were so accommodating to us. You always provide our group the best place to stay. Thanks again for the late check-outs for group members who had later travel arrangements back to San Francisco. Your resort property and variety of cabin sizes, big and small, is always perfect for our group planning retreats. We will see you again for our next group event in Southern California.'
